managed to put this stealth legislation into president obama's health care reform bill. the question is how and why. and why, whatever you think of a law, one of the president's top allies, that's right, the president's ally, helped the nra get it passed. no surprise that there's a big dose of politics involved here. jim acosta tonight is keeping 'em honest. >> when president obama signed national health care reform into law, few in washington knew that buried in the legislation's more than 900 pages was a gift to the nation's powerful gun lobby. but here it is. a provision entitled "protection of second amendment rights." it states the government and health insurers cannot collect any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition. the provision was such a secret, "the washington post" reports that some people in the white house didn't even know it existed, despite being in the president's signature legislation. joan alger did notice it. >> who put it in there? it might surprise you to learn it was this man, the most powerful democrat in congre
democracy. i guess my future here is in the hands of president obama. that's all for us tonight.

breaking out over president obama's pick for secretary of defense. he's chuck hagel. >> chuck knows war is not a distraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared towards the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. >> senator hagel, though, may not have an easy confirmation. here is the reaction today from senator john mccain, a one-time political ally who once considered hagel as a running mate. i have serious concerns about the positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical issues in recent years which we will fully consider in the course of the confirmation process. he's talking about iran, his willingness to consider cuts to the budget, and perhaps his pro -pro pro-israel support. >> i'm a united states senator, not an israeli senator, but my first interest, i take an oath of office to the constitution. >> lindsey graham said his former colleague would, quote, be the most antagonistic secretary of defens
republicans who threatened to move to canada when obama won re-election. what would it take for you to get rid of your american citizenship? because let me tell you, it's really hard to get it back once you give it up. where would you move? let's get more creative than canada. while we love you, let's see other countries. let us know on twitter and facebook. have a great weekend. "anderson" starts now. > >>> erin, thanks. we begin with explosive new allegations in the rape case turning the small town of steubenville, ohio, apart. two high school football stars are charged with raping a teenage girl in a string of parties this summer. an alleged crime where social media then played a part. they show kids laughing about the alleged rape, saying things that are too crass to even say here. but two starkly different narratives are emerging. one puts heavy blame on witnesses for not coming forward and on a community that tolerates bad behavior by local sports heroes. the other says they're exaggerated, the charges unfounded, and the rap on steubenville unfounded. susan, you spoke to the attorney for
, connecticut. take a look, the moment captured by a white house photographer when president obama got word of the newtown massacre. the president called it the worst day of his presidency. consequently, he's made gun control a key term of his second agenda, but you may not be aware the health care bill contains a little known item ability guns. it bars doctors from collecting data about their patients' gun use. consider that merely owning a gun increases your chances of homicide and suicide, it's not such a strange thing to study, but the nra objected. we wanted to ask them why, but they declined to come on "360." we're joined by peter from the "post" who has been reporting the story. as a doctor and a journalist, i was surprised to read about the provisions in the affordable care act. you have been investigating this for a while. how did it get into the bill specifically? what did you discover about that? >> the nra, as you know, is a powerful organization on capitol hill. they spent a lot of money on lobbying, and they did lobby congress and the senate specifically in the final days of t
